Mom, now you can create a teddy bear from your newborn's placenta!

From Lehigh Valley Parenting comes this creepy story about the weirdest toy design of the year, a one-of-a-kind huggable created out of placenta expelled during childbirth:

 Reportedly the teddy is made by first cutting the placenta in half and rubbing it with sea salt to cure it. After it is dried out, it is treated with an emulsifying mixture of tannin and egg yolk to make it soft and pliable. Then you can sew up the teddy bear. It's not designed to be a toy but rather a keepsake of the baby's birth.

In other news, the birthers demanded that Barack Obama release his cuddly teddy.
